Bacary Sagna praised Lisandro Martinez: He does his job perfectly

Lisandro Martinez is one of Manchester United's best players this season. The Argentine arrived at United from Ajax, in a transfer worth 55 million euros. Already at the start, he impressed the fans. In addition to the fans, one of those who was impressed by the Argentinean's performances is the former Arsenal defender, Bacary Sagna.

‘Lisandro Martinez at United, that guy is a real defender! ’ Sagna said, as quoted by Lord Ping. ‘He is serious – there is nothing flashy about his play. He does his job perfectly. Not only does he have great ability on the ball, but he relishes the duels – he engages attackers.

As a defender, you have to be scary, strong. Some defenders forget they are defenders, they want to be skilful at the back. He makes United solid and gives a platform for their attacking players to shine – that is the job of a proper defender.’

Paul Scholes on United transfers: Casemiro was done over two days

However, United legends are not happy with some of the moves of the United management.

Paul Scholes is in a dilemma whether some players were really the coach's wishes or whether the club acted differently. Paul is not satisfied with the transfers of the previous season either. ‘Jadon Sancho was a young player who Manchester United spent a lot of money on, who was unproven in the league,’ said Scholes.

And why would a club like Real Madrid let Varane go? If you looked at him last season, he didn’t look right. I didn’t think it was a great transfer window. Nobody at the club is taking responsibility for it.

This year, Casemiro was done over two days. I wonder if it was the manager’s signing. A lot of money, long contract. I think they need to put someone in charge of recruitment. Eventually, the manager will get blamed for it.’
